vintage, couture wedding {Ashley & KC} holman ranch, carmel valley, ca

I don’t even know where to begin with the story of Ashley and KC’s beautiful wedding day.  3 days before the wedding, the weather forecast went from sunny skies to an early spring rain storm. Really? With 3 days of prep, Ashley and KC with the help of her family, her amazing wedding coordinator, Amy Byrd, and the incredible staff at Holman Ranch, were able pull together a beautiful rainy day. To pull together this wedding-a blend of rustic, vintage, Euro couture-is nothing less than magical.  Fortunately, we were blessed the first half of the day with gorgeous and sunny skies.  It was so gorgeous out that Ashley and KC were so close to moving the ceremony back outside and good thing they didn’t because as soon as the ceremony started the rain came pouring down.  Actually, it couldn’t have been more perfect especially with the emotion of the vows that Ashley and KC wrote for each other.  With the rain streaming down, family and friends moved to the tents on the plaza for yummy eats by Paradise Catering who were grilling while the rain came down.  Delicious food, elegant decor and florals, gorgeous bride and groom, the love of family and friends, and the tears from the heavens--PRICELESS!  Ashley and KC, WOW! What a day! :) Now whenever it rains you will....I will.... always remember how perfect and emotional your wedding day was. Enjoy! xoxo, Stacey
